Maintenance Tips For Your Wood Fence


Is your wood fence in need of some repair or cleaning? Keeping up with the maintenance of your wood fence can mean the difference between a beautiful, complementary fence for your home and a rotting, warped one! Because wood is a natural material, it can be a little more susceptible to poor weather conditions, so it is important that you know how to care for it properly. Luckily, Hercules Fence of Virginia Beach is here to help.

When you first install your wood fence, you should apply a stain to the wood. A stain serves two purposes: It enhances the look of the wood, and it also protects the wood by waterproofing it. You should re-stain your wood fence as necessary in order to keep it waterproof, as water damage can warp your wood.

Another way to maintain your wood fence is to remove any mold or mildew that has grown on it. Mold and mildew grows in damp areas, so if it rains frequently in your region, you could be at risk. You can scrub away mold with a simple soap and water or bleach and water solution.

One maintenance tip for your wood fence doesn’t involve the fence itself; it involves its surroundings! Low hanging branches and tree limbs can scratch at the wood or, if the wind is strong, collapse on to them and break wood fence beams! Keep your trees properly trimmed to avoid this kind of problem in the future.
